IRT - California Open: Carson wins 2nd in a row

Racquetball's #1 player, Rocky Carson won his second tournament in a row on the International Racquetball Tour (IRT) by defeating Alvaro Beltran in the final of the California Open on Sunday, 6-11, 6-11, 11-0, 11-3, 11-6.

Beltran was trying to follow up his victory over Kane Waselenchuk on Saturday, which was Waselenchuk's first loss of the IRT season.

Carson's victory will make it more difficult for Waselenchuk to achieve his stated goal of regaining his #1 IRT ranking by season's end in his return to the pro tour after a two year absence.

For Beltran, he'll have to wait a little longer for his first IRT tournament victory. In 17 finals, he's yet to win one.
